Tulsa Small Business Attorneys
Each small business is unique, just as its owners are unique. But most small businesses also share similar concerns and challenges, especially when they grow. Davis Business Law’s team of Tulsa small business attorneys know how small businesses work, what they need, and how to help them build firm foundations.
Small Business Solutions
Small business entrepreneurs in Oklahoma have many concerns. Among their worries is when and if they need to invest in a business attorney. Attorneys charge high rates, they think, and run up the bills. But, Davis Business Law focuses only on small businesses. We know that small business owners do not have much extra capital, and we help them make the most of it.
We also urge our clients to invest in preventive care of the business. You provide your body with eye and dental exams and physical checkups to prevent larger catastrophic problems. You may do periodic car inspections to care for the parts too expensive to replace. We recommend you take the same preventative care of your business.
Lawsuits are expensive and businesses typically must pay their own attorneys’ fees. Seeing a small matter through trial can easily cost $50,000. A more average case, like an employment discrimination case, can cost $250,000 or more through trial.
It would be a wise business decision to build a relationship with a Tulsa business attorney who can take the pulse of or look under the hood of your business and find and fix potential problems before they become massive and expensive headaches.
Legal Experience Suited for Small Businesses
To properly help a business, areas of law an attorney should have experience in include the following: business law, employment law, intellectual property, or mergers and acquisitions. Not all attorneys are experienced in these fields. Davis Business Law’s team of attorneys has the experience necessary in these areas to provide you with a comprehensive slate of business services.
Business Formation & Dissolution
A strong business has a firm foundation which begins when you choose the proper business entity. Most businesses would benefit from advice on choosing the appropriate business entity and getting that entity set up, including drafting and filing necessary documents.
Dissolving and winding up a business can be complicated and needs to be done right to protect the company’s owners from liability. Assuming that the business dissolution is civil, owners must take several steps to dissolve an Oklahoma company. The process focuses on liquidating assets, paying creditors, distributing the remainder to owners, and notifying government entities.
Contracts are important. Whether it is a lease, an employment contract, a shareholder’s or operating agreement, or purchasing contract – we highly recommend your business have a Tulsa contract attorney draft or review it before you sign it. It can be dangerous for someone to create or negotiate a contract on their own and without legal advice.
Our Tulsa employment and human resources attorneys can design and implement your employment policies and properly train managers and employees in legal requirements. We would love to help you secure your business in ways including implementing an employee handbook, designing anti-discrimination policies, and ensuring your company properly follows wage and hour laws.
Perhaps you have made a creative work and want to protect it through a copyright. Or your brand has a logo and name that are unique and you want to keep others from using it through a trademark. Or maybe you need your employees to sign a confidentiality agreement so they do not share your pricing structure and customer lists. Davis Business Law’s business attorneys are able to protect your company’s intellectual property rights.
Mergers & Acquisitions
Mergers and acquisitions, otherwise known as M&A, is an area of business law that deals with companies purchasing or merging with other companies. Davis Business Law’s seasoned Tulsa business attorneys can help you buy a company, sell your company, or merge companies.
